I really love the Grovers. Smooth action tuning up and down, and they really hold the pitch. I also love the 18:1 ratio. To me, just right for fine tuning.
Installed these on a $100 guitar that wouldn't stay in tune and I now have a working Nashville tuned acoustic. The included bushing didn't fit the guitar, but I was able to buy some that did from this website.
Is their really anything else that can be said about the quality & tuning stabilty of a good old fashioned Grover Rotomatic?
These are the best, short of Gibson, maybe. I put these on all the guitars I build, or modify.
Best upgrade you can do for ANY guitar. I actually put a set of these on a piece of junk guitar, and what do you know? It actually stays in tune now. I put these on a brand new Strat knock off and it too stays in tune. Best bang for your buck. I also noticed that Gibson uses them on their very top of the line guitars. Must be something there if they put them on their guitars.
I replaced the OEM F-stamped tuners on my '72 Tele Deluxe reissue. You know that feeling when you fix or replace something and it's like, "this is what it was supposed to be like all along"? Yeah, same deal here. Great tuners. I snapped off one of the set screws whilst screwing it in so now there's half a screw with no head in the hole I drilled. That one's on me.
I used these to replace the tuners on my SX Furrian (Telecaster copy). The stock tuners were okay, but had some play and required more fussing to get the tuning right than should be. These Grovers are everything they should be; stable, smooth, fine tuning and very accurate. There are cheaper copies out there, but they aren't the quality of these.
Purchased these to replace the cheaper set on a G&L Legacy ASAT that wouldn't hold tune well. Much better at staying in tune now but you have to be really careful that you don't break the tiny screws that help hold the tuners in position. Drill correct size holes, grease them and take things slowly! I broke the head off one and it is a pain to fix.
I insist on Grover for all the guitars I repair or build. They're silky smooth, the quality is fabulous, and the price is very reasonable.
Have used these tuners on several of my projects ---- and love them!!
